Engineering A Path To Workplace Safety Excellence Through Employee Engagement

Number of Days Away from Work Decreased by 72 Percent in One Year
City of Henderson Parks
In 2009, the City of Henderson was ready to try a new approach to incident prevention. While its safety culture was sound, it felt it needed to take steps to get to the next level in order to continue decreasing incidents and injuries. The Citywide Safety Committee decided a behavior-based approach would fit their needs, with its focus on identifying unsafe acts that can potentially lead to an injury or illness. From there, STOP® For Supervision quickly became the best choice, explained Michael Francis, the City's safety officer.
Consistently Above 95 Percent "All Safe" for First Six Months of 2010
Knife River Corp. Western Oregon Division
Knife River Corp.'s Western Oregon Division implemented STOP® For Supervision in 2006. The program trains line management to help mitigate injuries and incidents through worker observations and discussions. Knife River management particularly valued the observation and communication skills taught throughout the program – the positive reinforcement STOP® teaches. These were the skills needed to most improve if Knife River were to succeed in making everyone feel responsible for safety.
